About This Game

Floating Point is a free, peaceful game about using a grappling hook to swing yourself gracefully through randomly generated spaces. In the air, you're fighting gravity. When you splash down beneath the water, you're fighting your own buoyancy to swing yourself further into the depths.

The only objective is to collect points, and the only thing that increases your points is swinging swiftly, smoothly and elegantly without hitting anything. As you pick up momentum, you start to glow, the bars you're collecting rise up, the music kicks in, and your trajectory burns a bright red line in the air, drawing huge, beautiful mathematical curves of your arcing flight.

Also the name is a pun, so that's cool.

This game is very simple, yet very awesome. You swing around and that's it. Very relaxing, and the difficulty level is customizable.

Have you ever played a Worms title and wondered what it would be like to have infinite ninja rope and no time limit? Or maybe you just dream of being Spider-Man and think that superheroes who fly are just cheating. If neither of those applies to you but you want a zen-like platforming (as far as platforming is involved because the game features platforms to avoid rather than traverse) experience that isn't loaded with spikes, traps, and pitfalls, this is the game for you too.

The graphics and presentation are minimalistic and sublime, the soundtrack is soothing, and the gameplay itself is simple. It runs smoothly, making those moments when you hit top speed feel ever so good and your graceful arcs that take you above and below the water's surface show that physics simulations need not be infinitely complex.

I personally find it less a 'game' and more a relaxing experience that brings a calm smile, reminding me of games like Flower. And for the price tag, you don't have anything to lose.

Ninja Rope Simulator 2014 gets a 10/10 red dots from me.

A very simple game with simple mechanics, and pretty much nothing except for you (the ball), the wire you create, and the cubes and water.

Oh, and the fantastic music.
Honestly, it's a small game but if you just want to relax a bit and enjoy a peaceful game, give this a go. It's worthwhile.

Worth playing now and then. Don't worry about the points, just relax and swing and bounce around. It's really that simple in concept, but getting the hang of swinging (particularly when you're "too high") can be tricky.

Possibly the most relaxing - yet simple - game on Steam. Maybe even on the Internet.

Pretty good for relaxing.

Just wear some headphones, and start swinging. At first, it might not seem like much, but after some concentration and a few minutes, you'll be deep in a trance like state, relaxed, you will only care about points, and about how good it feels to swing smoothly and with elegance from platform to platform.

This game reminds me of those little floaty bits you see sometimes and Stewie Griffen wrote a song about it on Family Guy. But the little floating thing turned red and into a dot and is also spider man, you see the blocks the floating point flings off of are metaphores for its depression and how it surived lung cancer. The red beams coming out of the blocks are the problems the cancer and depression and how you must gain momentem to topple your problems. But if you lose momentem you also lose motivation. You see its a metaphore. 10/10 would keep playing
